Membership and Licensing
Allotrope Foundation stands behind the Framework to ensure that the resources for the support, maintenance and governance are maintained and an actively engaged community of contributors is sustained.
As a not for profit entity Allotrope Foundation is dependent on the funding from membership to provide the resources for: operations, consortium and project management; governance support and maintenance; workshops, training and collaboration events; and of course new development to continue to grow and evolve the Framework. Given these drivers, the Allotrope Foundation membership model takes into account both non-profit and commercial applications of the Framework capabilities and, balances openness and accessibility with the financial stability of the Foundation and it’s infrastructure.

Membership and License Model
Openness, adoption, and sustainability are intricately linked, and have to be balanced:
Allotrope Foundation stands behind the Framework and ensures that the resources for the support, maintenance and governance are maintained and as well as sustain the community.
Given these drivers we have developed a membership and license model that takes into account both non-profit and commercial applications of the Framework capabilities that balances openness and accessibility with the financial stability of the Foundation and it’s infrastructure (human and physical resources).
